    Hi all,

    I have two hard drives that used to be in my old (dead) PC computer.

    Now I have a Mac, and need some way to transfer data from those hard drives on it.

    I have bought a USB external hard driver reader (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.13083), but when I plug my hard drives in there, the Mac doesn't recognize it (i.e. it should appear as an external device, but it doesn't).

    I tried doing this with Windows virtual machine installed on my Mac, but no dice either ...

    Any ideas?
